    Sync 4A Update Overview from Ford - Larger Apple CarPlay Android Auto interface, added dial functionality & more

    The real question is, can it go full throttle for more than 5 seconds?

    Any 2023 Mach-E deliveries yet?

    If you're and find one in stock you can grab a lightning fob and it works after programming which takes only a few minutes.

    Wireless connection and mobile app

    How's the reception where you have the car to the wireless router? Give this a go, turn on the wireless hotspot on your phone, and make the mach-e connect to the phone, that will rule out any reception issues. If that doesn't work, I'd say somethings up with the Wifi module on the mach-e. A...

    Hey Ford, I think you are doing great! Keep up the good work

    How DARE you enjoy your car in these forums?!?! Joking aside the car's a blast to drive. There's been many weekends I'm bored at home and think "I just wanna go drive around". Sure the software leaves a lot to be desired but there is one thing I plan on doing soon. Since a lot of my issues...

    Any 2023 Mach-E deliveries yet?

    How responsive is the display? Does it crash/lag a lot launching things like youtube? I wonder if they've upgraded the snapdragon chip on 23's or if it's still running the old 820A.

    Sync 4A Update Overview from Ford - Larger Apple CarPlay Android Auto interface, added dial functionality & more

    That's kind of like comparing an Arduino vs. a Raspberry pi. One is meant to do one thing very well over and over, the other is meant to do a lot of things. Im sure sync4 would run smooth on that if it looked like this:

    Sync 4A Update Overview from Ford - Larger Apple CarPlay Android Auto interface, added dial functionality & more

    Yeah I meant it as a joke, as in remove "anything" we don't need to free up some resources. I've recently learned that Mach e's have a Snapdragon 820A, which is a cpu released in 2016... I don't think any amount of programming will fix the speed. Some hope remains as China's Mach-e's have the...

    Ford offers Mustang Mach-E owners free Qualcomm 8155 chip upgrades in China

    I'd happily pay for this. Heck I'd let China monitor every single trip I take to the supermarket if it means a quicker Sync 4 experience. Please make this upgrade available in US Mach-e's.

    Apple CarPlay vs Android Auto

    Depends on whether you like to do out of the box stuff with your phone, because Apple won't let you do much. The Mach-e's software is slow as molasses, on Android you can just side load apps to let you stream YouTube, plex, Disney, etc with a much more responsive ui than ford's built in client...

    Is there a correlation between fast charging and HVB issues?

    You're better off finding any issues while it's under warranty. It would suck to find an issue for sure, but more so if you are past warranty.

    PSA: Unauthorized API use can disable your FordPass account

    Which if postman has the right Auth token is pretty ridiculous.

    Received gift from Ford: 3 years of TripleCARE -- TireCARE, DentCARE, and WindshieldCARE

    They're giving people this stuff for free... also a better screen ui has already been confirmed.

    PSA: Unauthorized API use can disable your FordPass account

    Looks like they have it working now, the only thing I couldn't figure out is how to easily request an api clientId + secret. Looks like you need to get in contact with them (good luck with that).

    YouTube Streaming Finally Appears in Software 3.5.3.3 !

    turn on the wifi hotspot on your cell phone and have your car connect to that. It should let you, be warned that client is slow AF and may take a few tries to even get it to the youtube screen.

    Hey Liz can you confirm you guys are indeed using the ford connect api and properly using oauth as per Fords own documentation? @Ford Motor Company

    Sync 4A Update Overview from Ford - Larger Apple CarPlay Android Auto interface, added dial functionality & more

    The thing crashes loading youtube most of the time, I doubt it can handle loading in an a baked in ad 😂

    Sync 4A Update Overview from Ford - Larger Apple CarPlay Android Auto interface, added dial functionality & more

    Hopefully none, I wish they'd remove it all together to free up some memory on SYNC so its not so sluggish all the time.

    Has Ford published a list of committed Model e Dealers yet?

    For order's I highly recommend Granger Ford in Iowa, I got my mach e for 3% under MSRP and they never tried to upsell anything, even offered to come pick me up if I needed transportation. I think @[email protected] is the manager there, they have an awesome team.

    PSA: Unauthorized API use can disable your FordPass account

    I had a hunch this might be the case =/. They seem to be just blindly locking accounts because of traffic coming from outside FordPass, regardless of whether it's legit or not. If they are doing it because of server load they might want to start upgrading their back-end, going to "connected...

    Choppy audio from wireless android auto

    I'd call them out on twitter/facebook, Companies tend to respond quicker when it's on one of the bigger public forums.
